I'd suggest doing nothing at this point.

Two possibilities:

First, the hacker isn't actually at the address shown, he's working thru another infected/compromised computer.

Second, it's nothing more than a script kiddie scanning for PC's infected with sub7.

If it's just a scan for sub7, then he'll move on, since your PC isn't compromised, and continue searching elsewhere.

DON'T attempt to scan/ping back at them unless you know exactly what you are doing. If you try that you are doing two things, first you are showing that your PC is present (your firewall blocked/ignored the scan I assume) at it's a valid IP address, AND you run the risk of pissing somebody off which could in return bring you a denial of service attack or constant probing.

If you continue getting scanned/probed from that IP multiple times over a couple of days, gather up your logs and forward them to your ISP and his. If you are on cable/DSL ask your ISP to change your IP address, or force a change yourself if you can.


Good luck!

this is why i think its wrong to post people's IP# ...usually the ip port scanning is some shmo to stupid to realize he is infected !!


warez boards seem to have more ethics than this board it seems!!

IPs can be rather personal, especially static ones. For some, it's like posting someone's social security or PID number.

_DM_ posted his info with a valid concern/question, in my opinion (and received a responsible set of answers). I think that counts towards good forum etiquite.

Just glad it ain't my IP up there. :p

Oh no, I fully agree with the thoughts of not posting IP numbers, just didn't see what 'warez boards' has to do with it.

I agree, the info and screenshots have been removed. That individual is probably a victim as well. I would have removed it sooner but, I hadn't seen it yet. :confused:
